Star Wars - Age of Rebellion
|Comlink (long range)||200||2||1|
Comlinks are the most common communication devices in the galaxy. Small, convenient, and easy to use, they come in a variety of designs; from complex handheld devices that can transmit audio, video, and data; to simple headset comlinks worn by Rebel commandos while in the field. Most are simple two-way devices that can transmit to and receive from a single mated unit at relatively long ranges over land and even into low orbit. There are also models that can transmit to multiple users at once or network whole squads together on the same frequency. Larger, longer-range models are carried in a satchel or backpack and can reach across entire planets and even well out into a solar system. Most comlinks, especially those made specifically for military or law enforcement use, can be encrypted for secure lines of communications. While they are largely foolproof, comlinks can be disrupted by certain terrain features, atmospheric disturbances, and deliberate signal jamming.
